This trip was well with the money and enabled us to see some of the sights from a fantastic view. Having already booked things to see and do,... More

This was a cool speedboat. Fun way to see Dubai. Plus the captain was very willing to take pics for you and offered water whenever you wanted. Be warned though - the salt water gets in your hair and on your skin. I made the mistake of leaving my hair down and had to shampoo and condition it twice when... More

Fun trip, there is nowhere to stay dry, but when your up at the front you are guaranteed to get a full salt water shower. Would recommend you bring a sealable plastic container for you personnel effects. Good fun, good value, just what you would expect from the yellow boat.

I Have done this several times when I have had visitors to Dubai. The 60 mins ride is good the 90 min maybe just too long if its a hot day. make sure you take cameras and sun cream as is does get hot. There are 2-1 vouchers in the entertainer book which makes the trip cheaper. You will get... More

We did the 90 minutes trip and loved it. Our guide was very informative and happy to take photographs out on the water. Bottled water was supplied and the leaving point was easy to find. Great way to see the sights

This tour lasted approx 1.15hours. If you are seated at the very front the experience will be a bit bumpier for you. William was a very witty, and entertaining quide. Bottle of water provided in the fee as well as photo-taking if neccessary. Boat went out into quite choppy waters and you got a view of Dubai skyline, various major... More
